Crystal Cruises' 2017 President’s Cruise to Revisit Holy Land

Edie Rodriguez, the chairman, president and CEO of Crystal Cruises, will host the annual President’s Cruise in 2017 aboard Crystal Symphony from Rome to Dubai, departing November 4.

The 2017 President’s Cruise will be Crystal’s first itinerary to the Holy Land and Arabian Peninsula since 2012. Rodriguez and her husband, Tom, will participate in receptions, parties, and onshore experiences throughout the 18-day sailing.

The  itinerary calls at Rome/Civitavecchia, Italy; Limassol, Cyprus; Haifa and Ashdod, Israel; Salalah and Muscat, Oman; Dubai, UAE; as well as transit of the Suez Canal, Red Sea, Gulf of Aden, and the Arabian Sea. In the Rose City of Petra, travelers will enjoy a special President’s shore excursion; an overnight stay in Muscat is timed perfectly for the Sultan’s birthday celebrations; and rock climbing and Indian Ocean scuba dives in Salalah. Sky Tea at the Burj Al Arab and sunset at the Burj Khalifa in Dubai round out the trip.

All-inclusive, cruise-only fares for the Holy Land & Suez Canal voyage start at $4,750 per person.
